Great travel classical
Martin773, 28.04.2016
This is a fantastic travel classical guitar. The 50mm neck width makes it a great in-the-car practice instrument while waiting for my daughters to finish their dance or ballet classes. Even though the width is 500mm, the actual distance from the outside of the low and high strings is the same as the strings width on my 52mm nut Hanika.

The guitar came stung with the A tuning string set (ADGCEA) which, while sounding great, wasn?t what I was looking for in a travel classical. I changed to the Cordoba/Aquila E tuning strings but really didn?t like the feel of the Nylgut trebles or the sound of the high E string.

It worth mentioning that the E set is a lot thicker than the A set and works at quite low tension. The extra thickness makes doubling the G and B strings back through the tuning post hole impossible so you need to go through the once and then tie off the string to the post.

I then tried D?Addario EJ27N ? scale strings. These are designed, I believe, for a 22 inch scale length, so quite close to the 20 inch scale length on the Cordoba. I tied the D?Addarios in using the Aquila ball-ends ? this is a bit fiddly but not really all that hard. Same problem with the G and B strings at the tuning posts.

The ? scale D?Addarios work out a lot better than the Nylgut strings but I found the trebles quite thick compared to what I usually use.

Next I tried D?Addario EJ44 Extras Hard Tension standard scale length strings. These I tied in using bridge beads instead of the Aquila ball-ends and I have to say I am very happy with the result in standard EADGBE tuning.

I also found the addition of a Mini Neckup support made holding the Cordoba much easier and in a position close to my normal classical playing posture and I also added a baritone ukulele foam case to replace the attractive but thin Cordoba gig-bag supplied

Altogether this is an excellent and very compact travel classical. Compact enough to play while sitting in the driver seat of a car (while parked!).

ideal travel guitar
serguitar, 07.07.2018
When I opened the package I did not expect it to be so small ! But I immediately liked the playability and the sound of this little marvel. The only small drawbacks are : the A tuning and small flaws in the finishing.
